Mexico created an upset of sorts by bringing down Germamy 1-0 in their opening Group F match of FIFA World Cup 2018.

German fans came out in huge numbers to support the national team, perhaps confident that the star-studded side would kick-off its World Cup campaign on a high.

 

3/8

Germany is one of the strong favourites to win the World Cup in Russia.

 

4/8

A win on Sunday (June 17) was elusive as Mexican fans were awed by their team's gritty performance - one applauded much by supporters and critics alike.

 

5/8

It was Hirving Lozano who scored in the 35th minute to put his team ahead - much to the cheer of Mexican fans and to the despair of the Germans.

 

6/8

From here on, the Mexicans remained rock solid and despite as many as 26 shots by German strikers, none managed to hit the back of the net.

 

7/8

A special word for Mexican goalie Guillermo Ochoa who managed to keep out everything that was fired at him - especially towards the closing stages of the game.

 

8/8

In the end, the Mexicans withstood the German bliztkrieg to get off to a flying start in the World Cup.
